> it once again makes absolutely crystal clear how utterly ABSURD it is to EVER invoke ANY such inferences about lifestyle, role models, save the world, "family values"

Your 'Book-burning rants' are such a petty waste of time!

"It seems pathetic that it has to be us who are publicizing the plight of the rainforest, with all the other citizens of the planet, and all the other resources out there, but since no one else is doing anything about it, we don't really have any choice." – Jerry Garcia, September 13, 1988

There ya go! That was the response I've been waiting for...

I imagined YOU wouldn't take this lying down.


[But, just for the record, I never burn books, just re-write them]

Whoops--got cut off: I was going to add, a counter to this argument (your "good") would be that by 87 the DEAD were actually taking on the "straight approach" to saving the Rain Forest, by in essence, throwing money at it...just sayin'; of course I overstate all of this to get a reasoned response because like you I REALLY want to believe it can work, etc., etc.

> "Due to a 'deleting error', you have been de-programmed!" PASSED by Voters!

So, last night, the corrupt and biased Fort Collins city staff, the two redneck City Councilmen, the cheater City Manager, the redneck Mayor, and the pudgy FCPD chief used 'deleting errors' and 'programming malware' at A PUBLIC Hearing! The whole damned-thing was taped and archived! The streaming of it will be available in a day or two.

What I can undelete and report to you today is that, last night, Fort Collins, Colorado joined the righteous cities of Denver and Boulder, by passing ordinances that give initial approval to allowing retail pot stores and marijuana grows. Final consideration of the ordinances is expected in two weeks.

The vote, with council members Gerry Horak, Lisa Poppaw, Bob Overbeck and Ross Cunniff in support, came after a long and sometimes emotional debate on the issue. Bob Overbeck in the City Councilman from my district. Thank you Bob, Ross, Lisa and Gerry!

City Staff recommended a two-year moratorium so the City could "study pot-selling"; their presentation of the facts SUCKED! We now have a dozen mmj dispensaries in town, after Fort Collins voters overturned City Council's earlier ban on them. Study what, 'how to be a redneck'? Two redneck councilmen cried, whined, moaned, begged, and pleaded their BS for about an hour; it was pathetic: "Drink Beer; Play Football; keep kids safe." The cheater City Manager is the highest paid City Manager in Colorado. He just got a whopping $35,000 raise! On purpose, he leaves out critically important document(s) from City Council's information packets for this discussion item. Our Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem called out the City Manager for this. The Mayor Pro Tem accuses the City Manager of "Manipulation"! The deceitful City Manager admits to his huge mistake! The pudgy FCPD chief lays out a bunch of unfounded "statistics" and he has no documentation to back it up, even using words like 'anecdotal'; making a mockery out of the FCPD!

One of the public citizens who made comments last night said, "Look at me. I'm a clean-cut, young student going to classes at Colorado State University. I'm not into the Grateful Dead or anything like 'that'. I'm just a normal kid who likes to smoke pot."
